Children without a home not only don't have the support of family around them. Usually they do not get to celebrate holidays like the rest of us. Therefore, the Kiwanis Club of Ahwatukee with many friends and neighbors sponsor foster care group homes for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with entertainment and prizes at an undisclosed secure location.
Generally a 60+ volunteer team prepares and serves a sit down traditional meal of turkey, three sides, dinner rolls with butter, pecan, pumpkin or apple pie with whipped cream, and a beverage. Side dishes vary, depending on the chefs: mashed potatoes and gravy, turkey dressing, green bean or corn casserole, sweet potatoes-yams, fruit salad or green salad with dressing. Lemonade, sparkling cider and soda pop are popular, depending on the donor.
In the past local and state police officers help out. A DJ pumps up the energy and the Arizona Cardinals provide entertainment.
Please join the team to make Thanksgiving so very special. This is a beautiful and memorable event for all - kids sit around a table, enjoying turkey and all the trimmings - while feeling cared for, special, and loved.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We depend on community support for a location, security, chefs, food, beverages, desserts, a DJ, special guests, 60+ event volunteers, and holiday themed table settings for our foster kids and their chaperones. Please contact us if you are interested in supporting this highly popular Valley-wide event.
